The riot at Bucksnort and other Western tales by Robert E Howard( )
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sixteen tales collected here are some of the best of Robert E. Howard's stories, featuring Breckinridge Elkins, Pike Bearfield, and Buckner J.

Fifteen of the stories were published between 1934 and 1937 in Action Stories, Argosy, or Cowboy Stories; the other remained unpublished for more than thirty years. Many of these stories were rewritten for book publication and have never been reprinted in their original form.
